How to buy Bitcoin in Canada


Bitcoin price is around USD $5300 now (Apr 10, 2019), which is much higher than the price of USD ~$3000 just a few month ago. Some friends asked me recently how to buy Bitcoin in Canada. So, I would like to introduce the options for Canadians to buy bitcoin today. Note: I am NOT telling you that you should buy those cryptocurrencies now. All I provide here is just an introduction of the workflow.

KOHO Prepaid Visa Introduction

Deal Link: www.koho.ca

KOHO is a reloadable prepaid Visa with smartphone App. You can download the App from their website. I think that KOHO is a smart way to save and spend. It looks like the STACK prepaid MasterCard we introduced before (see link: https://www.canadianrewards.net/2018/11/stack-prepaid-mastercard-get-1-year-of.html), but it also has some different benefits. I think KOHO is a very useful card for some people.

Amazon.ca Rewards MasterCard by MBNA

Deal Link: https://www.amazon.ca/MBNA-Amazon-ca-Rewards-Mastercard/dp/B07MJM4F44

A new Amazon.ca Rewards MasterCard is here. This card is no annual fee. Cardholders can earn Amazon Rewards on this card (2000 Amazon Rewards = $20 Amazon.ca gift card). You can get 5% back at Amazon.ca, grocery stores, and restaurants for 6 months after approval, on first $3,000 in eligible purchases.

Eligible Prime members can get 2.5% back on eligible purchases at Amazon.ca, Whole Foods Market stores, and foreign currency transactions after the welcome offer. If you are not a Prime member, you can get 1.5% back on eligible purchases at Amazon.ca and Whole Foods Market stores. For other purchases, you can get 1% back everywhere else Mastercard is accepted.

From my point of view, this is a replacement card for the previous Chase Amazon Visa. If you are not a Amazon Prime member, I don't recommend this card to you.

BTW, if you are interested in this new Amazon MasterCard, I suggest that you can wait a few days before the application. There could be additional GCR bonus in the future...
